Kelly Danyel Holmes of Hercules, California, attempted to use a forged check at the Wal-Mart in Anderson, California. Alas for Ms. Holmes, the forgery didn't fly. Wal-Mart security matched Holmes to the description of a suspected forged check passer from the Wal-Mart store in Medford, Oregon. Wal-Mart security then alerted the Anderson Police Department.
Holmes then gave false identification to the Anderson police officer who arrived to investigate, prompting her immediate arrest. Items found during a search of Holmes' purse linked her to identity theft, burglaries and forgeries in seven different jurisdictions of California and Oregon.
Interestingly, Holmes' cousin Brenda Hackett was caught at another Wal-Mart store received the same type alert from the Medford Wal-Mart. Anderson police suspect that the two cousins were traveling together committing the same type crimes. How's that for family fun?!
